drAwn 2gether: Joanna Phelps

DiomiraDiomira

Diomira…a city with sixty silver domes…the multicoloured lamps are lighted all at once.

(Italo Clavino, Invisible Cites)

Cut or torn, carefully placed or hidden between layers of pattern; the various components merge to form a no-mans land where they can create and inhabit a space of their own.

The title of this piece is borrowed from ‘Invisible Cities’ by Italo Calvino.  Calvino’s imagined cities provide a quasi-narrative for this work that locates itself somewhere between the realms of drawing, painting and collage.
